Infinitude Clothing™ Partners With X-STATIC® Antimicrobial Technology To Add Infection Prevention Benefits To Its Fashion-Forward Apparel Line

SCRANTON, Pa., Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinitude Clothing™, designer and manufacturer of professional medical apparel, recently partnered with Noble Biomaterials to incorporate the proven performance of X-STATIC ® Antimicrobial Technology in a new line of premium fashion-forward medical scrubs, white coats, surgical hats/caps and stethoscope covers.  The new apparel line from Infinitude features a blend of trend-setting style, quality and comfort. Soft, durable and functional, the brand will offer scrubs in ready-made designs in an array of colors as well as a wide range of made-to-order individualized designs.

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, resulting in approximately 99,000 deaths annually 1 - more than breast cancer, diabetes, influenza and car accidents. Moreover, 90 percent of the patient contact environment is made of up soft surface fabrics such as scrubs and lab coats and these have been proven to be contaminated. X-STATIC antimicrobial technology permanently bonds textile fibers with a layer of 99.9 percent pure metallic silver. The silver layer creates an ionic shield that inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi directly on the surface of the fabric. It provides permanent protection for patients and staff between launderings, lasts the life of the product and since its inherent in the fabric, does not require modification in staff behavior.

"We recognize the importance of infection control in healthcare today," said Dr. Gil Ortega, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and founder of Infinitude Clothing. "Infinitude Clothing powered by X-STATIC technology will allow our customers to not only look and feel great, but better equip them in the battle against healthcare associated infections."

Infinitude Clothing designs and manufactures premium medical apparel for medical professionals. It is dedicated to providing top-quality, high-fashion garments with unmatched comfort, luxury and class.
